StuffIt Product Line Updated to 6.0.1 — Aladdin Systems has released StuffIt Deluxe 6.0.1, a small update to their venerable file compression and archiving software. Along with a number of bug fixes, new features in StuffIt Deluxe 6.0.1 include support for the GnuTar format and symbolic links used in Mac OS X, plus support for Microsoft Entourage in StuffIt Deluxe’s "Stuff and Mail" and ReturnReceipt features. Plus, you can now specify an anti-virus application to scan archives after expanding. The free updater for StuffIt Deluxe 6.0.1 is a 3.1 MB download; make sure to read the installation notes.
Aladdin has also released free 6.0.1 updates to the shareware DropStuff and DropZip and freeware StuffIt Expander, though the only notable improvement is the capability to Shift-click multiple items when selecting files via the Compress or Expand menu items (this is actually a feature of Apple’s Navigation Services that DropStuff and StuffIt Expander make accessible). StuffIt Expander 6.0.1 is a 2.2 MB download, DropStuff 6.0.1 is a 3.9 MB download, and DropZip is a 3.8 MB download. If you download the full StuffIt Deluxe update, you don’t need these individual updates as well. [ACE]
